1930-P Standing Liberty Quarter

1930 is the last year that the Standing Liberty Quarter was minted and is one of the lowest mintage pieces in the series. It is one of the most popular and collected silver quarters for a few reasons. Firstly, very early issues of the coin had the breast of Lady Liberty exposed. This caused an uproar among the public, causing the mint to quickly modify the design to cover that portion of her body. Secondly, it is the only Quarter that depicts Lady Liberty Standing rather than her bust or her being seated. Lastly, it is the last Quarter minted before the Washington Quarter, which has been minted from 1932-present day.

This is why many coin aficionados consider the Standing Liberty Quarter to be the "Last Classic Quarter." You can own this last year of issue piece for less than the cost of lunch! Each Philadelphia minted coin will be in circulated condition as depicted.
